• I've received emails and PM's asking me about "Group Buys" and promotions.

    A Group Buy here on SnoWestOnline.com would be a situation where a normal member (non vendor or mfg) personally collects orders from other members. That member then uses those orders to negotiate a better price with the Vendor/Mfg for HIS/HER "Group" of buyers.

    Here is an example of a viable "Group Buy"

    http://www.snowestonline.com/forum/showthread.php?t=269222

    A promotion that has the words "Group Buy" in the title is still a promotion, and from the rules that were handed down to me by Harris Publications is that non-advertisers cannot run promotions or open sales programs on the forums outside of the swapmeet.

    If a members wants to become a group buy manager, maintain a thread and collect the funds and negotiate a group buy... as a member, you are welcome to do that as long as you are not attached to the business of the vendor or Mfg.

    If you are a vendor/MFG and you want to offer an EXCLUSIVE "SnoWestOnline ONLY" promotion that is exclusive to snowest readers, please contact me and you'll be able to put it up in the Polaris forums.

    Also, before any vendors/mfgs get all "riled up" over this know that the moderators are strictly volunteers and do not receive a dime from any advertising $$ spent on this site.

    As ALWAYS, since DAY ONE of me becoming a moderator, I have pioneered, supported and encouraged vendors and mfgs in getting the word out to our readers with "New Product Announcements.

    Have a great season.

    From this point on, all vendors/mfg's promoting Pre-Season tiered sales programs, in the Polaris Forums, that are not paid advertisers will be appropriately moved to the swapmeet section of the forums.

ECU is it bad, don't know

- How can you tell your ECU is the issue?
- Is there testing that can be done without a DW?

I'm working with a 2008 700 Dragon, it runs fantastic, sounds strong. My issue is high idle, 3200rpm's yeah kind of a lot.

What have I done to remedy?

- cleaned throttle body
- replaced throttle body boots
- cleaned reeds
- cleaned and rebuilt exhaust valves
- replaced o-rings on injectors
- sensors tested
- coolant
- air intake
- exhaust
- TPS
- reset the TPS .7 base, .95 idle
- throttle cable slack
- brake clean test for vacuum leaks

I'm leaning towards the ECU, no?
Is it possible that it's reading the sensors incorrectly.

Dont let the smoke out bud! I would get it checked out before you run it any more, Yes Digital wrench will show you your voltages at multiple places, inj, chassis, system, charge, etc whatever they are called I cant recall exactly. But I think its got something to do with your grounds or maybe lack there of. especually from the stator to reg/rec. The ecus are wired directly to the stator on pretty much every polaris sled and that can get expensive when things go wrong. So on the 700 dragon in 08 thats a touchy era depending on your electrical system I would not go swapping anything electrical unless you are certan its for your vin, year, make model part number tripple make sure for sure! On another theory you could have a crancase leak because its possible the engine may not respond like you would think using the starting fluid vacuum leat trick. At least I wouldnt rule that idea out without knowing for myself is all im saying.

As far as your tps goes if you set the voltage and later its off again .. save your self a headach and just replace it espesually if its the original one or unknown condition.
I also recall something with the exhaust temp sensor and needing to unplug it and start the machine and plug it back in while it was running. Maybe someone will have a better recolection on that.

Well I hate to do it but I finally listened to others and bought some starting fluid. The clutch side crank seal appears to be bad. Hosed it down and my idle went from 3200 down to nearly killing it as I held it there. $850 just in labor, I really want to do it.i just don't have the facility to do so.
